Vegan Baking Tips
Yeast should be stored in the refrigerator to prevent spoiling. Stored in this manner, yeast will keep for up to six months. To test your yeast to see if it's still good, combine 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoons yeast with ¼ cup warm water. If the mixture starts bubbling it's still good. If it doesn't it should be discarded.
When you bake with baking powder and baking soda, chemical reactions start to take place as soon as they go into your batter. Your item must be put in the oven immediately so the proper chemical reactions happen under heat. Preheat your oven when you start your recipe so it can go into the oven as soon as possible.
